Jennifer Hudson embraces her dramatic, short new 'do

Jennifer Hudson Shows Off Super Short Cut

Short hair don't care!

Jennifer Hudson buzzed off her hair a couple of weeks ago, but she waited until Thursday to finally debut the dramatic 'do -- and it looks amazing!

The American Idol alum has posted 25 (yes, really!) photos from her whirlwind 24 hours -- which included flying back to the U.S. after a stint in Germany in order to celebrate Hatch Day, an annual event held in honor of Hudson's late nephew, Julian -- and nine of those showed off her fierce new look.

WATCH: Jennifer Hudson Readies for Her Broadway Debut

Hudson has sported a number of hairstyles over the years, from bangs to waves to a pixie cut. As this newest look is her most daring yet, it's no wonder the 33-year-old singer-actress wanted to show it off.

"All black every thang! Who needs hair, when u serving face!" she captioned her buzz's debut on Instagram.

All black every thang! Who needs hair, when u serving face !

There's this fierce pose with her posse before a performance in Germany:
